The General Manager(P)
North Western Railway,
(Kind attn: Shri Karan Singh. CPO)
Sub: Residency period for promotion from Goods Driver to Sr. Goods Driver, Passenger Driver to Sr. Passenger Driver, Goods Guard to Sr. Goods Guard and Passenger Guard to Sr. Passenger Guard.
Ref: (i) Railway Boards letter No.E(NG)I-94/PM1/9 dated 02.09.1994
(ii) Railway Board’s letter No.E(NG)I-2004/PM7/16 dated 22.03.2005
This bears reference to North Western Railway’s D.O. letter No.875/E/O/Selection dated 03.09.2014 and letter No.655ई/ मैक्नी/ टैक्नी/ जोधपुर मंडल भाग.1/उपरे dated 21.10.2014, wide which the. issue of promotion from Assistant Loco Pilot (ALP) to Sr. Assistant Loco Pilot, without observing two years residency period can be made or otherwise, has been raised.
The matter has been looked into and it clarified that in the restructuring orders of Group ’C’ and Group ’D’ categories effective from 01.03.1993, 20% of posts were placed in senior grade in the various grades of Drivers and Guards. Hence, for promotion to non-functional. grades such as ALP to Sr. ALP and Goods Guard to Sr. Goods Guard etc., staff are not required to render two years service in the basic grade for promotion to senior grade posts, as earmarked in the restructuring orders ibid. However, this dispensation in residency is restricted to senior most 20% staff lying in this bloc only.
